Special cases: children with febrile neutropenia and suspected COVID-19 Children should initially be assessed and tested in ED not the wards.

protective equipment should be worn, irrespective of whether the child has symptoms consistent with COVID-19 or not. Suspected tonsillitis in primary care or emergency departments During the COVID-19 pandemic, if a diagnosis of tonsillitis is suspected based on clinical history, the default becomes not examining the throat unless absolutely necessary. If using the to decide if antibiotics are indicated (validated in children 3 years and older), we suggest that a pragmatic approach is adopted (...) , and automatically starting with a score of 2 in lieu of an examination seems reasonable. Antibiotics should be considered in children with a total feverpain score of 4 or 5 (we suggest children with a score of 3 or less receive alone). Although this is likely to result in a temporary increase in antibiotic prescribing in children, we feel that this is preferable to healthcare staff being unnecessary exposed to COVID-19. Antibiotics rarely confer a benefit in children under 3 years with tonsillitis and should

151. Beta-lactam allergy in the paediatric population

Beta-lactam allergy in the paediatric population Beta-lactam allergy is commonly diagnosed in paediatric patients, but over 90% of individuals reporting this allergy are able to tolerate the medications prescribed after evaluation by an allergist. Beta-lactam allergy labels are associated with negative clinical and administrative outcomes, including use of less desirable alternative antibiotics, longer hospitalizations, increasing antibiotic-resistant infections, and greater medical costs. Also (...) , children with true IgE-mediated allergy to penicillin medications are often advised to avoid all beta-lactam antibiotics, including cephalosporins, which is likely unnecessary in greater than 97% of those reporting penicillin allergies. Most patients can be safely treated with penicillin or amoxicillin if they do not have a history compatible with IgE-mediated or systemic, delayed reactions such as Stevens-Johnson syndrome (SJS), serum sickness-like reactions, drug reaction with eosinophilia

and training. One of the major research gaps was training and competence. This paper has also outlined a list of research priorities (including clarification on the value or full blood count, antibiotic prophylaxis and flushing, and the need for training and proficiency). LIMITATIONS, REASONS FOR CAUTION The recommendations of this paper were mostly based on clinical expertise, as at present, only a few clinical trials have focused on the oocyte retrieval techniques, and almost all available data (...) practice in US-guided oocyte retrieval. The Delphi method survey included 53 questions completed in three rounds and resulted in 32 standards of practice. In addition to the results of the dissertation, a new literature search was conducted. Databases (PUBMED/Medline and the Cochrane Library) were searched from inception to 17 July 2018. Search terms focussed on US, oocyte retrieval/pick up, Doppler, sedation, anaesthesia, infection, antibiotics, hydrosalpinx and flushing, and included extended key

Clinical management Based on information from the reporting countries, management of PIMS-TS cases has been mostly supportive as they are at the severe end of the spectrum. As KD was part of the differential diagnosis, treatment with IVIG has been the predominant management option. Antibiotics, corticosteroids
